Does this package have OS version restrictions? Probably not. It built on PPC 10.4 and 10.5 and on intel 10.6.
Which section does it belong in? graphics
Have you built it with -m --build-as-nobody? Yes, on all three platforms, the -nox and also the plain variant.
The main difference is the use of "CC=gcc-4.2 CXX=g++-4.2" as additional configure parameters. On Leopard, Mac OS X 10.5, this is necessary to ensure the use of OpenMP because here Fink is playing foul and prepending /sw/var/lib/fink/path-prefix-g++-4.0 to PATH so that the faulty /sw/var/lib/fink/path-prefix-g++-4.0/c++ shell script is used which resets the compiler to g++-4.0. This lets the statement
fail because now a different and older compiler is used than during the configure step which cannot use the OpenMP interface and so the build fails, as Dominique and I reported. So this make invocation is better reset to plain 'make'.
• On Tiger this setting plays no role, the compilers are too dumb – except, maybe, one tries to use a Fink gcc4[2-6] package for compilation.
• On Lion it also plays no role, the compilers are modern and up-to-date.
• On Snow Leopard Fink also changes PATH but here the Fink wrapper scripts keep the compiler version. So when GCC 4.2 is active the OpenMP interface and libgomp are found and used. When GCC 4.0 is used then OpenMP is not found and also no libgomp. Compilation succeeds always.
Using for example
if [ `sw_vers -productVersion|cut -f2 -d.` == 5 ] ; then export CC=gcc-4.2 CXX=g++-4.2 ; fi
the OpenMP aware compilers are enabled only for Leopard.
I also substituted the old and not working ("unknown option") "--enable-libtool-verbose" with "--disable-dependency-tracking --disable-silent-rules" – the latter option makes the compilation verbose again.
Another change is that the -nox variant uses --without-openexr because the utilities (binaries) could not be built on Leopard (PPC) and Snow Leopard (intel, Sandy Bridge). Finally the fourth "DocFiles: LICENSE README.txt ChangeLog NEWS.txt" statement was commented: with HFSX and this line enabled the packages do not build.
The PATCH file just takes into account changed path names to the files.

The output from dpkg -L is not available because the package is already updated with another one, one up-to-date.
